Is that a hint I detect? Is it a device used for measuring distance by dropping a small item every so often? How many beans am I from correct?

koos got it

"An odometer, that is, a device for measuring distance. This is an old design, improved by Leonardo Da Vinici. As you rolled along, a peg would turn the upper wheel at a set distance. When the upper wheel turned a complete rotation, a ball would drop into a box. Walk the distance of whatever you’re measuring, and you can count the balls to know how far it is. "

The image basically tells you what it does, but I'll add another hint.

It's not a ball bearing but it is the same inventor as the ball bearing, and a lot of other things.

So what it is is a type of transmission which smoothly goes from underdrive to overdrive, invented by Leonardo da Vinci. Our materials tech tree is still not developed enough to completely replace step-type gear transmissions in high torque applications like cars, but there is a company that makes these for bicycles and some other uses. It's quite revolutionary.

Ein video.

Next turn to whoever can come up with something easier.
